After maintaining contact with audiences through virtual concerts for the past few months, the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (DSO) opened the concert season at the Rector's Palace last night, respecting epidemiological measures and with a limited number of visitors.
The string chamber ensemble was conducted by maestro Ivan Hut, while the soloist in Rossini's theme with variations for cello and strings by Una Larma was Vid Veljak, cello leader of the DSO. The program also included Rossini's Sonata for Strings in A major (arranged by Pavle Dešpalj), Respighi's Old Arias and Dances, and Three Works in the Old Style by Henryk Górecki.
Both the audience and the musicians equally enjoyed the concert, above all eager to meet together, and especially supporting the young cellist who delighted everyone present.
The next concert is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11, when young musicians from the Luka Sorkočević Art School will perform with the DSO Chamber Orchestra and conductor Slobodan Begić, on the occasion of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Day.
